Real Fake History The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is one of those movies that when it came out, felt epic. The performances, the music, Bane shattering Batman’s back… it was so good, you kinda ignored the gaping plot holes. Then you watched it again and, OH, there they are. These plot holes come up big in Machinima’s Real Fake History, detailing the battle of Gotham City from Christopher Nolan’s concluding part to his Batman trilogy.

Watch the Real Fake History webisode below.

Adam McKay isn’t one to shy away from comedies that address current events. The Other Guys centered on Ponzi schemes and made an effort to address those issues in the end credits. So now after writing and directing Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and writing the script for Ant-Man based on Edgar Wright’s story, McKay is setting his sights on the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s that eventually led to the financial crisis in 2007-2010. The film will be called The Big Short.

Based on Michael Lewis‘s (Moneyball) The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, the film has already cast Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, and Christian Bale. According to reports, this is somewhat of a passion project for Pitt, who has been avidly pursuing to get it into production. Hit the jump for more.

Christian Bale and Terrence Malick

For lovers of filmmaking as an art, Terrence Malick is a living master. Since the 1970s, he’s been a critical darling and award-winning filmmaker whose style is breathtaking, heart-wrenching, and ethereal. You can get a small taste of his dramatic and beautiful style in the new trailer for his upcoming film Knight of Cups – watch it here below.

The official synopsis is being kept mostly under lock and key, but what we do know is that Christian Bale stars as Rick, who is swept up in the lavish party lifestyle of Los Angeles and Hollywood. Best guess (after watching the trailer) is that Rick is going to have a soul-searching moment and try to escape the excess and depravity of the party life in hopes of redeeming himself, like an epic quest to become more “human” and less of the image of a man who isn’t even real. Sounds perfect for a Malick film, if you ask me.

Christian Bale as Moses in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings

Exodus: Gods and Kings
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: Steven Zaillian
Cast: Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 150 Minutes
Release Date: December 12, 2014

Directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven), White Egypt stars Christian Bale as Charlton Heston and Joel Edgarton as Yul Brynner. An interpretation of the Book of Exodus, Scott’s Old Testament epic features historically accurate portrayals of Israelites and Egyptians who, as we all know, were white people.

The story begins in 1300 B.C.E, where Heston prepares to attack the Hittite army with Brynner. It is here that Brynner’s father, the great Pharaoh of Brooklyn (Seti I, played by John Turturro) tells the two men of a prophecy in which one will save the other’s life and become a great leader. During the battle, Heston saves Brynner’s life, leaving both men questioning their place in White Egypt.

The Dark Knight Rises - Bruce Wayne

While discussing his upcoming role as Moses in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, Christian Bale was asked about Ben Affleck being cast as Batman for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Though it was known for a while that Bale and Christopher Nolan were to end their run with the Batman franchise after The Dark Knight Rises, the actor made it clear he wasn’t opposed to another movie. There were even rumors that WB was actively pursuing him to star in Justice League. But in the end everyone moved on to other things and Affleck was eventually cast in the role.

Read what Bale had to say about his reaction to Affleck’s casting below.

For his upcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, director Ridley Scott chose to cast an 11-year-old boy to portray the voice of God.

In the movie, Moses (Christian Bale) meets the young boy named Malak (played by Isaac Andrews) in front of the burning bush. The boy then appears from time to time to guide and debate Moses, who eventually realizes that this boy is actually being used by God to speak to him. Fun fact: the word “malak” translates to “messenger” in the Hebrew bible.
